The FRAC Isolation Adapter provides dual barrier protection for ESP completed wells during FRAC operations on adjacent wells without the need to pull the ESP and rerun following the FRAC. This innovative approach replaces the existing ESP completion adapter with the FRAC Isolation Adapter without the costly setup and expense of a workover rig.
The simple design uses a 5,000 PSI rated isolation sleeve run over the penetrator wires to support two testable barriers of protection. A BPV in the tubing string and a master valve is used to provide protection on the tubing.
The capillary line is also addressed with adding a second Swagelok and cap to the end. A union can be used to reconnect the line again on re-completion.
